Don Nasca-Nelson

Had a surprise visitor the other day, Don Nasca Nelson, who taught in the campus school and eduction departments for many years, c1955-1995. I have photos of him shooting off Estes rockets on the lawn of Hartwell in the 1950s! He also started the Office of Sponsored Research, forerunner of todays grants and development office.

He is interested in researching the history of the campus school, and the office. I showed him some materials I have here, and have shared more via email. We had quite a long visit, and I want to get together with him again this summer to do an oral history interview.
